Deadline Today to Apply for Tax Foundation Fall Internships
July 31, 2014
Tomorrow is the deadline to apply for a fall 2014 internship at the Tax Foundation!
While there are a number of Washington, D.C.-based public policy groups today that cover a broad range of policy issues, only the Tax Foundation provides a principled voice on the impact of tax and fiscal policy at the federal, state, and local levels. We offer a unique internship program designed to introduce undergraduate and graduate students to tax policy principles, and apply them in assessing and advancing public policy. Working directly with our staff in various areas of tax policy, interns gain valuable professional experience and learn about all aspects of our operation.
While data entry and routine tasks are part of the internship, the majority of the work is substantive. Interns are afforded flexibility to attend events, lectures, and seminars around Washington, D.C. As a non-partisan research institution, we encourage interns to develop a broad sense of our principles and find innovative ways to contribute to our mission. We offer internships in federal policy, state policy, legal, communications and outreach, and development and fundraising. Past interns, with the assistance of our staff, have researched and published commentaries on policy in newspapers and journals, participated in area events, and posted on our tax policy blog. We also bring in expert speakers to interact with interns and assign a staff mentor to each intern.
